Once again we have a wonderful picture from the 2011 Holiday Fundraiser Concert. It was a fun event where people could talk and socialize over food and drink and listen to great music.
This year we will once again be using Fractured Atlas to host our fund drive. There will be many fun thank you gifts for each of the giving levels. With many options, and lots of fun rewards, this is a great idea for a music lover in your family. Some of the gifts include mugs, tote bags, programs and posters signed by the musicians and composers, and even tickets to some of the 2013 Festival events. If you are unsure of what to get your arts loving friend for the holidays, you can make a donation in their name and give them the thank you gift!
Be sure to spread the word about the campaign. Every dollar counts and you never know who may be interested in helping our organization. We will update you as soon as the fund drive is up and running, so keep an ear open!
Hello and Happy Holidays!
I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and and friends and a couple of days off of work. In this week’s post, we have a picture from the 2011 Holiday Fundraiser concert. The evening included wonderful music, food, drink, and friends. This year for our fundraising drive we will be utilizing Fractured Atlas and their hosting services. We have done this before and hope that this year will be more successful than ever. For that, we need your help.
On the Fractured Atlas website, there will be a page featuring our fund drive. (We will post links as the time comes.) On this page will be a video and information about the organization. Please share this with friends! Many of you are already aware of what the Women Composers Festival of Hartford is and does, but your friends and family may not. The video will be short and sweet, so share it. You never know who may become interested in our cause. There will be thank you gifts for the various donation levels ranging from $1 to $500. Every penny counts so please spread the word and help to support this years festival and musicians.
Hello again! It is another Wednesday which means another picture post! Today we continue in the series of pictures from the past Holiday Fundraiser concerts. This picture features the wonderful, elegant deserts that were a part of the festivities of the night.
Be sure to check out Fractured Atlas and this year’s Festival Fund Drive once we get it up and running. We will be featuring new thank you gifts for the various donation levels, so make sure to take a look at them and see if there is anything you or a loved one would like. You can also share the link to the page with all of your friends and family. You never know who might be interested and decide to give a little. Every little bit helps so keep you ear close as we announce the start of the drive, and make sure to spread the word!
Hello again! Hopefully everyone is safe and recovering from Sandy. We have another picture post from the 2011 Holiday Fundraiser concert that may help to get your spirits up. In this picture, Festival Director Daniel Morel is chatting with some of the fantastic ladies who were involved with the concert. From left to right they are: Mattie Banzhaf, Sheri Brown, Patrice Fitzgerald, and Grace White. The fundraiser gala included food, drinks, and performances.
This winter we will be running our fundraiser on the Fractured-Atlas website. This will allow us to create a home page about the organization and the upcoming festival. There will also be descriptions of the various donation levels and the fun prizes we will be giving as thanks for any donations. The fundraiser will be running for a couple of weeks. So be sure to check it out when it launches and then spread the word!
For this week’s post, we have a picture of the wonderful Gilda Lyons to share with you. This is from the 2011 Festival Concert Pro Femina where Gilda sang soprano for her own three-movement work entitled A Small Handful, written in 2002.
Ms. Lyons was the featured Composer Guest for the 2011 festival. She had pieces performed on four of the exciting concerts from that festival including the Chamber Orchestra Concert and the Electro-Accounstic Evening, showing her diversity and range as a contemporary composer.
Be sure to come and see the 2013 Festival Concerts where you can check out this years Festival Guest as well as hear works by many other interesting, dynamic women!
